THURSDAY SPARKS: THEMES – MARCH 22

Good morning!  Welcome to another Thursday event, in which we spark some creativity and dig into the books we’re reading for our Thursday Themes, hosted by Reading Between Pages.

This will give us a wonderful opportunity to explore and understand different writing styles and descriptive approaches adopted by authors.

 

March is going to be all about making life easy. This month we will do ‘Pick what you see first‘ themes.

Pick the first sentence that has any relevance to any movement(car, boat, motorcycle, walk, run, swim etc…).

MOVEMENT - First snippet from the book having any relevance to movement…

Today I’m featuring a book from next week’s list:  Lone Wolf, by Jodi Picoult.

Blurb:  A life hanging in the balance . . . a family torn apart. The #1 internationally bestselling author Jodi Picoult tells an unforgettable story about family secrets, love, and letting go.

In the wild, when a wolf knows its time is over, when it knows it is of no more use to its pack, it may sometimes choose to slip away. Dying apart from its family, it stays proud and true to its nature. Humans aren’t so lucky….

(PART ONE:  CARA)

Seconds before our truck slams into the tree, I remember the first time I tried to save a life.

I was thirteen, and I’d just moved back in with my father.

I just know I’m going to love this book!  What about you?  What are you sharing today?
